Shop and savor

Shake Shack’s prime location and food is a hit


What makes Shake Shack so good is that their burgers aren’t even the best part. Located in the middle of the Shops at Buckhead, a 9 acre mixed use development, Shake Shack has something for everyone. The restaurant opened on September 30th, 2014.

If you decide to sit out on their rooftop balcony, you’ll often see Lamborghinis and Mercedes G Wagons passing underneath. The Shops at Buckhead space attracts some of the richest in Atlanta, with stores like Dolce and Gabbana, Dior, and Hermes. 

The restaurant’s indoor space at ground level has a beautiful abstract painting of a peach and huge windows with natural light spilling in.

However, what stands out to me every time I go are the shakes, specifically the Peachtree. The shake’s composition of a rich creamy blend of caramel and fresh peaches truly hits the spot. This shake is incredibly rich, though, so its not for everyone. 

In the ten times I’ve been, not once have I ordered anything I haven’t liked. Shake Shack’s options across the board are consistently high quality. Their juicy burgers are fairly thin, but you can order a double burger.

Their delicious fries are salted to perfection and complimented well by the signature Shack sauce, which is fairly similar to Chick-Fil-A sauce.

These factors combine to make Shake Shack my second favorite burger in Metro Atlanta, second only to Farmburger.

With a lively atmosphere and customers eating and shopping, Shake Shack is always a great urban experience.
